    John Flanagan, you just described the Founding Fathers' intended role of the press. Unfortunately, people are less and less willing to pay for their media, and good journalism costs money. I think Thelma just did a good job in this column, though, of exactly what you said we need.

    I am convinced more and more than ever that government officials at all levels can be so petty and use their positions to defy one another at the expense of their constituent's welfare. We need to have the oversight of ombudsmen and citizen representatives to ensure transparency and efficiency, and we need to expose purely political backbiting which negatively influences government.
